World Cup fears for Huddersfield & Australia’s Aaron Mooy after Bournemouth

Huddersfield 4 – Bournemouth 1

Bournemouth came crashing back down to earth on Sunday at the Kirklees Stadium.

Huddersfield came into gameweek 27 of the Premier League on terrible form. They had lost their last five matches on the bounce in the English top flight as they slipped in to the relegation spot.

But against Bournemouth the Terriers rediscovered their scoring touch to claim three big points.

New signing Alex Pritchard bagged his first EPL goal to fire Huddersfield ahead after 7 minutes. Junior Stanislas levelled for Eddie Howe’s men in the 14th minute.

But Steve Mounie then stole the headlines as the striker scored in either half.

Rajiv van La Parra scored a late penalty to put the icing on the cake for Huddersfield.

Shocking injury blow to Huddersfield’s Aaron Mooy

But Huddersfield’s win came at a big cost.

During the second half, Australian international Aaron Mooy was subbed out the game after a bad injury.

Mooy hit the deck after a clash of knees in midfield.

Eventually Mooy had to leave the field on a stretcher. The Aussie star was holding his head in his hands while his left knee is in a brace.

Australia, of course, have qualified for the 2018 World Cup, and Mooy is a starter in their team.

UPDATE: The good news is that Mooy’s injury isn’t too serious.
